Data Protection Webinar | Data Protection and Brexit

Data Protection Webinar | Data Protection and Brexit

With only two months remaining of the EU transition period, many organisations have been anticipating what the Data Protection landscape will look like post Brexit. The EU GDPR will no longer apply directly in the UK, however GDPR will be incorporated into UK domestic law. It will become known as ‘the UK GDPR’ and sit alongside an updated UK Data Protection Act 2018.

While many organisations are planning how this will affect their use of data, the changes bring complexities to the transferring of personal data between the UK and EU; cross-border transfer mechanisms and organisations will be required to update their Privacy Statements in line with new processes adopted.

Data Protection specialists, Morgan O'Neill and Loretta Maxfield hosted a short webinar in which they provided guidance on the steps organisations should take to prepare for Brexit and Data Protection in the UK, including international transfers and personal data.

Topics covered included:

  • The impact of the end of the transition period on data protection 
  • UK GDPR and Adequacy 
  • How to manage data flows with EU and non-EU countries after the transition period 
  • Practical steps organisations can take now, to prepare for the end of the transition period
